    In my pre Basenotes days, the bottle design would indeed often lure me. My last "bottle" puchase was that Gucci by Gucci which I bought just as I was becoming much more educated about scents. It sucks.

    Yeah, definitely if the fragrance isn't too expensive (<$30), I probably won't mind buying it just for the bottle even if the juice is terrible or inappropriate. Unfortunately, none of the bottles I like fall into this category. Right now, I just hope that Narcisco Rodriguez releases an Essence for men and have Lovegrove design the bottle again.

    I just noticed He Wood by DSquared2 and it looks awesome! I'm gonna try a sample of it first, but I might just buy it even if the scent is just so-so. The good thing about designer fragrances is that they generally aren't repulsive, so even if they aren't fantastic, they are probably still wearable.

    I ordered blind Kingdom because the bottle is just the most beautiful bottle I have ever seen.
    I have also baught Lalique Le Parfum. The bottle was just too beautiful to pass by, I smelled the juice, it was quite nie, so I bought it.

    Nope.The bottle is just a plus, but it's all about the fragrance for me.

    That's silly but cute. Do you like the Gucci Pour Homme 2 bottle? I think it's one of the nicest bottles around...

    No. But I sometimes test a fragrance because the bottle catches my eye. And I have to confess that I once considered buying a limited edition of one of my favs because of the bottle design.

    Obi-Wan: I didn't say anything!

    No.

    I do love the bottles, though. Getting to look at and handle so many beautiful (and occasionally stunning) bottles is an enjoyable part of the perfume collecting hobby. But I've never bought a fragrance solely because of the bottle, and probably will never get into perfume bottle collecting, either.

    No way, it's the stuff it contains that counts...

    Although I have never bought a perfume for the bottle, I am a little tempted to own L'Air du Temps with those beautiful doves.

    Although I haven't bought a fragrance *solely* for the bottle, there have been occasions where an attractive bottle played into my decision to buy blind. Jil Sander Sun Men, for example. That bottle is too cool.
